characters Under the Wire ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB review ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ð William Ash William Ash Ð 7 read & download An enthralling memoir of WWII adventure fighter pilot fugitive in Paris Gestapo prisoner and ultimately a great escape artist Bill Ashs story is unforgettable From the lean days of Depression era Texas to the thrill of being one of the few who flew Spitfires from a death defying crash landing in Occupied France. Despite the fact that this will be the third posting of the year for me this was actually the first book that I read in 2013 and it may very well be the best book that I will read all yearWilliam Ash now age 95 and his co author Brendan Foley have created an immensely readable very enjoyable story about young Bill Ash an American who joined the Brits in fighting the Nazis by flying a Spitfire a fighter plane before America even joined the warAsh begins his story by telling about the difficulties of growing up in the Great Depression in Texas Somehow he managed to get a college degree even though there were no jobs to be found for this new college grad So he hit the road riding trains traveling the country and living in hobo camps One day he heard that the Canadians were looking for fighter pilots to send to England and they would even take Americans who renounced their citizenshipAsh s reasons for joining are a rather vague mishmash of looking for adventure wanting a steady paycheck wanting to fly and wanting to fight the Nazis but that s okay The story has been good so far and it only gets better as Ash talks about the joys of a full belly and learning to fly Soon enough he s off to England and set up in a Spitfire England s hotshot iconic fighter plane of the warRead at

characters Under the Wire ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB review ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ð William Ash William Ash Ð 7 read & download E makinga riveting story of bravery by one of the last of his generation UOTES Ashs book is full of such wit and held together with the sort of wry adventure story that begs to be immortalized on film as a cross between Tom Jones and The Great Escape Metro News Toronto 4 of 5 stars A remarkable story Toronto Sta. I am trying to recall how I stumbled on this non fiction book I just did a uick search of wwwnewsfrommecom and verified Mark Evanier recommended it It took me three weeks to get through it but I am very happy I did It takes a while for me to get through a book like this because it is a time in history that is so depressing for me How an entire country like Germany could go insane and decide to slaughter half the population and take over by force the other half is sad frustrating and chilling It makes me angry It makes me hate the people who could do this They were a country fueled by hate and they tortured people as badly as any society in history although they share company with others of their ilk So enough about the backdrop of the story this is a story of a hero A true hero An ordinary person who decided he hated bullies He hated them enough to give up his American citizenship and cross the boarder into Canada so he could join the war effort before the rest of his country came to their senses and realized bullies don t leave you alone just because you leave them alone The first part of the book is his life before the war the depression hit him hard enough that he became a hobo wow the next part is how he became a great fighter pilot the last half is how he became an escapologist with enough thrills and escapes that if you put them in one movie nobody would believe it He is obviously the model for the Steve Mcueen character in the Great Escape although in point of fact that was one escape he didn t take part in This is a five star book of a five star person Read this whenever you want to put your life in perspective and realize how amazing we have it Read this whenever you want to remind yourself for as many bullies and evil empires as the Nazis there are heroes and survivors like William Ash A hard read for people like me A must read for everyone
